Create a file /etc/modutils/local
In that file put your local module requirements
alias eth0 eepro
options eepro irq=10 io=0x300
Then run update-modules ( as root ) from the command line.
This creates your /etc/modules.conf
To make the module load each boot time, put eth0 on a line in /etc/modules

Interfaces listed on the "auto" line are bought up at boot time.
Also, see "man interfaces"
<snip from mine>
iface lo inet loopback
# BIG NOTE!!!!!
# The pcmcia package doesn't use this file.
# See /etc/pcmcia/network.opts
# automatically added when upgrading
iface eth0 inet static
address <your ip>
netmask <your netmask>
